Pure Encapsulations R-Lipoic Acid is a highly stable supplement that supports nerve health, glucose metabolism and antioxidant activity. It helps fight off oxidative stress to vital organs and increases energy and memory.
- Pure Encapsulations R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized) provides a highly bioavailable form of R-Lipoic acid, with the potential to provide enhanced antioxidant activity, cellular energy production and general metabolic function.
- The antioxidant properties of R-Lipoic Acid neutralize free radicals and enhance cellular activity.
